Already there are clear signs that the financial situation for many NFL players is growing dire.
If things go the owners way the NFLPA could crack soon.
June 3rd is the day that is set for the court to hear the NFL’s appeal of judge Susan Nelson’s ruling. This could be the final straw that could divide as according to Pro Football Talk one NFL player has taken out a $500 thousand loan.
That means there will be many other players that will start taking out loans and NFL players are notorious for blowing through money. So, that means you can expect by the middle of June for players to start complaining, especially players like New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
In the end, it going to be fun watching the verbal barbs fly between NFL players and NFLPA management.
Like many times before the National Football League Players Association has failed to listen to reason to only take their case to court in hopes of maximizing their leverage against the NFL.
As each day passes the NFLPA is looking more and more pathetic.
The writing on the wall is that the courts will rule in favor of NFL owners in regards to a lockout. Despite that the NFLPA refuses to sit down and do a deal even though NFL owners have made another proposal during the last round of mediation and have done whatever the courts have asked them to do.
The simple fact is that the NFLPA is acting like a five year old child who refuses to leave a store after being denied a new toy. Then when the parent picks him up to leave the store the kid makes it worst by hitting, screaming or whatever he can think of to get put down so he can get that toy.
The fact of the matter is that most NFL players don’t care about the fans or what they think. All they care about is getting paid.
In the end, kick and scream all you want NFLPA it isn’t going to get you what you want.
